Stephen Simon is a movie producer responsible for some of our all-time favorites - Somewhere in Time with Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour, What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams and Cuba Gooding, Jr., and many more. He believes the best movies are those "that ask who we are and why we're here, movies that make you feel at least a little bit better about being a human being." Does this sound like any of the films playing at your local cinema this week? Maybe not. Chances are those blockbusters were born more of a need to guarantee hefty box office sales than a need to enlighten or inspire. But Simon has discovered a vast worldwide audience for what he calls "spiritual entertainment," and he's developed some innovative ways to support visionary filmmakers and put their movies into the living room of any viewer who wants them. If you love to be entertained and inspired at the same time, you'll have a great time sharing in this hour of movie talk with Michael and Justine Toms, and Stephen Simon. (hosted by Justine Willis Toms & Michael Toms)
